Weekly iPhone Wrapup: Apple’s Shenanigans, SMS Hack, 3.0.1, Jailbreak, and More…

In case you missed some of this week’s articles, here is a wrapup of everything we blogged about.

OS 3.0.1

What’s cooking? 3.1 or 3.0.1?

I bet that it’s going to be version 3.0.1 as I think it’s still a little early for Apple to release version 3.1. But hey, I might be totally way off.

iPhone OS 3.0.1 is out
